words, one big, vast cost-saving measure. a politician in britain tonight said, it's a smoke screen. if it is, then once again, the murdoches have played their hand extremely well. >> you talk about a smoke screen and the politicians there. politicians are on the run from this, aren't they? some of them in the past have been very fond of having murdoch publications endorse them, get behind them. now they're trying to say, we've had nothing to do with the man behind the curtain. >> yes, and you see, the thing is that parties from both sides, the labor party, for example, the socialist labor party could never have got elected, perhaps, originally, if the "sun" newspaper, the murdoch staple, hadn't supported them. they always needed them, david cameron, needed the "sun" to come back on to his hands. david come cameron is close friends with rebecca brooks, the editor during this scandal, and is now the top executive. what hugh grant said to me yesterday, basically, the actor, is, it stinks. the stench of collusion between government, politics, media is so entrenched here that one this n
was always striving for a big deal. from the speaker's perspective, the white house at the last minute from their view moved the goal posts. they -- what it sounds like, not only comes to some agreement on a framework, but they were talking real details on some of these proposals, having to do with cuts and spending cuts and medicare and enconstitutitlemen all that. after this agreement that they have come to -- it had reached, they say the white house moved the goal posts. and in their view, speaker bane her to step back, take stock of the situation and really look at the calendar very seriously. as he said had, to do something because the white house's vision was not in line with that of congress. and that's why speaker boehner has now made this very aggressive move saying he's now just working with congress on this. >> jessica, we're running very tight on time tonight. i want to get through a lot fast. is there a sense when you look at the numbers that both sides talk about, even if you take their conflicting versions of what happened, i had the sense they were both talking about really
earth there. and i'm a big space geek. i love that. we'll see you back here tomorrow. "in the arena" starts right now. >>> good evening and welcome. i'm tom foreman. tonight we are getting mixed signals about a possible back room deal on the debt ceiling just hours away from what president obama at least at one point called a deadline for a decision. "the new york times" says president obama and the republican speaker of the house john boehner are close to an agreement. roughly it would involve $3 trillion in cuts and an eventual overhaul of the entire tax system. here's the catch, though. other sources are shooting down the idea that this is even happening as fast and hard as they can. listen to boehner himself earlier today on rush limbaugh's radio show. >> rush, there is no deal. no deal publicly, no deal privately. there is absolutely no deal. >> no deal, no deal, no deal. now, here's the white house spokesman jay carney. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. we are -- obviously, the president is in discussions with all the leaders of congress as well as other members
to look at it. if i can dial out for a minute and give you a big picture perspective, despite this tit for tat and all this political spinning going on, there is still a meeting scheduled at the white house tomorrow, as far as we san antonknow, all sides are planning to come here and they will be discussing detailed spending cuts and for the first time, this discussion of tax changes. will there be revenue on the table, a major controversial issue. despite all this, there could still be potential progress towards one of these deals tomorrow. we'll see. >> you answered my last question. we'll check back with you later on. they might want to start with decaf tomorrow. >> let's go to our top story now. this is an important thing for all of us to be aware of. this in-depth look at the rupert murdoch scandal as it begins to reverberate in america. we thought it might and indeed it has. murdoch withdrew his bid for bskyb amid the most disturbing allegations that emerged. according to a british paper, journalists from the news of the world approached a new york private investigator to buy pho
for joining us. if we don't get a deal out of washington before the big bad debt ceiling deadline, one of the guys you can blame or thank, depending on how you see it, is congressman joe walsh, a republican from illinois. he's one of those freshmen who rode the tea party wave into washington last fall. we mentioned them a moment ago. he spoke out against a compromise at a tea party rally in washington earlier today. listen. >> i'm a freshman. maybe i'm naive. but i don't think unless we force -- unless we force republicans and democrats to balance their books every year, they won't. the only way we can do that is to force them. the only way we can force them is to put a balanced budget amendment in the constitution. we have to do that. we can't yield. >> and congressman walsh joins me now live from capitol hill. congressman, welcome back to the show here. listen, you know what i'm hearing more than anything around d.c., people are saying about you and some of the other people who are really holding the hard line here, don't these guys know how to take a win? because the feeling is that
connell is also catching flak. presidential candidate newt gingrich called it an irresponsible surrender to big government and continued overspending. are the republicans handing the president a hot potato or a blank check? we'll have more on that. first, here are the other stories we're looking into tonight. the ultimate game of hide and seek. the cia in pakistan using dna to track the most dangerous terrorist in the world. >> sounds like it's straight out of a spy novel. >> but the story is fact not fiction. and republicans held hostage by the tea party. i'll ask one of their leaders, dick armey, will their hard-line position on the debt ceiling take down the gop, along with the rest of the country? then off with his head. in england, that's how parliament once dealt with the king. now they're after the head of another great empire. will rupert murdoch keep his crown? we'll discuss that later. now back to the top story, the partisan gamesmanship ramping up in debt ceiling talks. did they accomplish anything tonight? >> i wish i had a different answer than i had last night but again no breakth
has to do that for us. so it is going to be a big change for some folks. >> stillson always dreamed of being a launch director. no woman has ever held that job. but for now, nasa has nothing for her to launch. back on board -- >> let's go take a look at the air look. >> sure, we'll take a look in the air lock. crawl about 12 feet. i'm going to drag these cables in, too. on the other end is the shuttle's cargo bay, spacious enough to hold a school bus. over the 39 flights of "discovery," dozens of astronauts in spacesuits have been at this exact vantage point waiting to step out to repair a satellite or build the space station. >> grab the hand hold here and then just keep coming, put a hand up here, and can you pull yourself right on up. >> we're climbing the ladder to the flight deck. in the weightlessness of space you'd just float your way up. i'm allowed the privilege of the commander's seat. there's a lot of buttons here. i guess i shouldn't touch. >> john, here we are on the flight deck of "discovery." the commander sits in the left seat. >> right. >> the pilot sits in the righ
, a big thumbs down over there, and then -- then -- we will move on. but the number of votes on either side really doesn't matter so much as this number. the number of days and hours now left until the money runs out. this is what we've been warning about for weeks and weeks. still, the vote today was enough to al lookout low the republica spike the ball into boehner's court. and he did so with a vengeance. >> i struck my neck out a mile to try and get in agreement with the president of the united states. i stuck my neck out a mile. and i put revenues on the table. in order to try to come to an agreement to avert us being where we are. but a lot of people in this town can never say yes. a lot of people can never say yes. this house has acted. and it is time for the administration and time for our colleagues across the aisle, put something on the table. tell us where you are! >> well, over in the senate, what they are putting on the table is mr. boehner's bill. they'll kill it over there. that's under way right now. we'll let you wln voting is done on that. this makes the vote tonight i
what, these are important times, we're debating big, passionate issues. when my president, when your president, goes on tv and says that he's going to have to start pulling social security checks on august 3rd, he's not being truthful with the american people. so, you know, look. i'm tired of politicians all over the place who don't talk straight and just say what they believe. let's cut through all the crud and try to solve issues here. let's quit being political. and i think that's all this president's been doing. >> you think the talk about social security was essentially a scare tactic? >> absolutely. we know -- and this is -- this is what they began a few months ago when they began talking about this notion of default. they know, we know, there are plenty of government revenues to service your debt, to service our debt when august 2nd comes and goes, if it comes and goes. same thing with social security checks. and my fear is that he's going to continue down this line and try to scare military families. and try to scare families who have student loans. and just continue to go do
are not voting for the plan, is that correct? >> no, sir. >> why not? >> not good enough. we have a very big problem. i appreciate the speaker's effort to try to get something through when you have a senate that won't have a debate, but we need a bill that solves the problem long term. i don't think it does enough. i'm optimistic we can still do a better job to solve our nation's problems. >> have you been called in by the leadership this afternoon? >> i have not been called in. i made it clear early on i think we can do better. >> what are you hearing from the republicans? i think we need you to join with us. specifically, what are they saying? >> this is very important. this is the only thing that can happen. then we hear a word that may be tabled in the senate, again. my concern is with the senate that refuses to vote on any plan. the balanced budget amendment has to be done. when we hear about downgrades and defaults, my concern is a bill like this is not good enough to avoid a downgrade. >> is there anything that would satisfy you now? if the speaker said i need to know what you want, w
this? >> the big box office will be rupert murdoch, one of the world's most powerful media moguls, sitting in front of members of parliament in the british house of commons, being cross-examined essentially about what he knew at news international, news corp, about this phone hacking scandal, we are expecting to hear much less from rebekah brooks, former ceo of news international. editor of "news of the world" as with she's already been arrested so there is a police investigation into her conduct and her -- what she's been up to. and so she's going to be much more con stained as to what she'll be able to see legally to the mps, who will be asking questions. also constraints on what the mps can ask rebekah brooks. they don't want to jeopardize the ongoing criminal investigation into what brooks may or may not have done. an interesting day to watch tomorrow. >> matthew chance in london tonight, thank you very much. >>> now more on in-depth coverage. together with sean hoare, paul mcmullan was one of the first to go on record alleging illegal activity. he was a features executive. wh
't he go back stronger. >> reporter: let's not mix a lot of different things into one big pot. the poll you referred to was a poll that was done the day after dominique strauss-kahn's arrest. it was a poll that was faultily done. it was declared illegal and done as people were still trying to adjust and absorb the reality that one of the most powerful men in the world who could have been president could have committed such a crime as he was about to announce his nomination. so, i disregard the importance of that poll that said early on that a majority of the french thought that he might have been the victim of a plot. as for france having different sexual morays, seduction is not criminality, seduction is playful, should be enjoyable. committing a violent crime against a woman which was what was alleged to have happened is appalling for any french person. and so one has to make that distinction. what is the bridge between seduction and a violent crime is the potential abuse of power which is -- which is also something that is endemic in french life. >> you make a point that's what's eve
